Some Motivation for Thought

Last week I bemoaned about being frugal, and some of you are with me.  It's hard to keep saving money when it seems like EVERYONE around you is spending it.  I came up with a few things that make a difference to me. 

  • Recieving the mortgage statement when MORE money was going to principle than to interest.
  • Student loans one and two GONE in one summer.
  • Seeing the saving account grow little by little every month.
  • Knowing that there will be hundreds of dollars a month to save and give and invest in just a few years.
  • Trusting that being responsible with the material goods I have been entrusted with is acting in obediance to God.
What are some of the "little" things that keep you going strong on spending little?


  1. Those + knowing that my children are being taught how to be responsible with their money and hopefully will go into adulthood with a better knowledge of how to make their income work for them.

    And my piggy is getting fatter by the month, while the payments are diminishing.

    I have 2 paid off cars, no medical bills, a good savings and quickly paying off debt. All the while having a good plan for the future to guide my actions.

    It's a good day when God gives you the ability to look past wants and needs, to see all the things you have that others don't.

  2. Yay for saying bye-bye to debt! Good job Julie!
